Easter 5 A - 1 Peter 2:2-10

1 Peter 2:2-10
Longing for spiritual milk is a good thing if those well fed on faith do not withhold mercy from those who are less than conscientious about their spiritual diet. If mercy made us God’s people then the spiritual sacrifice acceptable to God is not a piety that isolates but a radical inclusion in the same way that Jesus ate and drank with those the holy priesthood of his day labeled undesirable. That being said Jesus ate and drank with a purpose, namely that those who are starving for lack of a real relationship with God and God’s people might be bathed in the marvelous light of the One who is continually calling us all out of darkness.
